to do after stanford? >> i would like to earn my way to being a ceo. >> welcome to 60 minutes on cnbc. i'm bob simon. in this edition, we look at three groundbreaking approaches to education. first, we visit the seed public charter school, the nation's first urban public boarding school. later, we meet some unlikely students who are getting a liberal arts college degree behind bars. and finally, we go to the harlem children's zone under the leadership of geoffrey canada. we begin with seed, one of the most successful and innovative charter schools in the country. it was started in 1998 in southeast washington, d.c., where some of the nation's most troubled schools are located and where most students don't finish high school. but as byron pitts first reported in 2010, seed students are different. most graduate and go on to college. admission to seed is by lottery, open to any family in the district willing to take a chance. >> girl 41. >> yeah! >> this family was one of the few who won the lottery, a $35,000-per-year education paid for by private and government money. >> boy 12. >> yay! >

consecutive week but in today's "closing bell" we've got our exchange josh brown, cnbc contributor from fusion analytics, jim pullson from wells capital management and juan kenneth pulcari and our own rick santelli. for you, jim carlson, it's all forward. >> there's still a lot to like. corporate earnings coming in right and a relatively low competitive hurdle with rates and a liquid market, investors challenging from their asset allocation, probably underallocated stocks, growth coming in better than expected. we've got confidence rising as evidenced by better m & a activity, for example. >> all right. >> so i think you'll want to stay overweighted stocks even if you have to withstand some pullback. >> what about the m & a action? josh, what does it tell that you we're seeing more deal flow? is that a positive for the stock market, or is it a result of the market as companies use their stocks as currency? >> no, that's -- i think that's a positive provided the deals don't get embarrassing and out of control, and they don't become this lbo mania where it's just debt piled on top of debt and yo

on cnbc. i'm steve kroft. in this edition, scott pelley reports on hard times in a small midwestern town, and later, bob simon's story on a yonkers, new york, bakery that became a role model for social activism and small business success. we begin with the plight of wilmington, ohio. when president spoke of "the winter of our hardship" in his inaugural address of 2009, no one understood it better than the people in wilmington. they were in the grip of a brutal series of layoffs at dhl, the air shipping company, at a time when claims for unemployment benefits in the u.s. were the highest in nearly 30 years. in december 2008, just before all the speeches and parties of inauguration day, scott pelley headed to ohio to find out what questions the families in wilmington were asking. >> are we going to lose our home? you know, are we going to be able to pay our property taxes? what are we're gonna do for insurance? what are we're gonna do for food? you know, and these are questions that you'd never think that you'd ask yourself, you know. and now they're discussions in the home. >> bear hug, b

[watch ticking] >> many of the deals that helped create the current financial crisis would have been illegal during most of the 20th century, in violation of gaming laws. but in 2000, congress gave wall street an exemption that's turned out to be a very bad idea. >> it's legalized gambling. it was illegal gambling, and we made it legal gambling. >> with no regulatory controls. >> with absolutely no regulatory controls. zero, as far as i can tell. >> i mean, it sounds a littl

it pay off for the company? we'll ask our guests. we'd also like to point that cnbc and yahoo! do have a business alliance to share and co-produce editorial comment. we've got that disclosure out of the way. jeff, you think marisa is clicking on all cylinders. what is she doing right, and how are those moves evident? >> well, we have seen new ceos move into other companies in the tech space that sometimes have had some uneasy footing, taking a look at, you know, r.i.m. where somebody got ahead themselves and promised more than they could deliver. here's somebody who really knows the business. she is the first ceo, a company that's 22, 23 years old. they have had seven, eight ceos going up and back between entertainment, media, technology. she does it all and this is the right space to introduce the major reshaping. she first had a taking hold process and tried to figure out what does she know and not know? watched who reacted to some of her early less but consequential and early symbolic moves and now this big reshaping. it's the brilliant right timing. it's already paying off. >> ben,

from new york. mark simone, w.o.r. radio host, and cnbc contributor robert costa of the "national review." okay. mr. gregory meeks, welcome back. thank you, sir. what is your take on the sequester? a, is it going to go through in six days, and b, is it good or bad for the country in your view? >> b, it's bad for the country. >> okay. >> a, it probably will happen. >> why is it bad? let's go to b. >> i think it will slow down the economy. we'll lose millions of jobs. there would be a stoppage of work at a number of places. the economy would get back into a tailspin. and so therefore it's bad. >> this is all for $44 billion. that's all it is, by the way. $44 billion let me get this right. 1/4 of 1% of gdp. and i just want to add, being a democrat, one of my favorite democrats is bill clinton. what did bill clinton do working with republicans? cut spending. what did the economy do when bill clinton worked with the republicans to cut spending? the economy boomed. that's your model. >> but it's the sequester, which means you that can't cut spending smartly. it's just across-the-board r

minutes on cnbc. i'm steve kroft. in this edition, we take a look at technology. we examine how breaches in digital security threaten everything from weapons systems to bank accounts. plus, we meet the mr. fix-its of the geek world. we begin with electronic sabotage. nothing has ever changed the world as quickly as the internet. in less than a decade, the pentagon's warning that it might be possible for a computer hacker to disable critical infrastructure in a major city and disrupt essential services has actually happened. other online attacks have seen millions of dollars stolen from banks and defense systems infiltrated. it's why, as we first reported in november of 2009, some people are already saying that the next big war is less likely to begin with a bang than a blackout. >> can you imagine your life without electric power? >> until february 2009, retired admiral mike mcconnell was the nation's top spy. as chief of national intelligence, he oversaw the central intelligence agency, the defense intelligence agency and the national security agency. few people know as much about cyber

the money. >> oh, oh. are you sure that that's okay? >> yeah, it's fine. >> welcome to 60 minutes on cnbc. i'm bob simon. in this edition, we turn our attention to some foreign intrigue. first, a story about a mysterious computer virus that struck an iranian nuclear plant. later, the report of how american agents hunted a notorious arms dealer. and finally, an account of a chinese-american spy trying to steal u.s. military secrets for china. we begin with the story of stuxnet, a computer virus considered to be the world's first destructive cyberweapon. it was launched several years ago against an iranian nuclear facility, almost certainly with some u.s. involvement. but as steve kroft reported in march of 2012, the implications and possible consequences of this new kind of warfare are now being studied intensely. >> i do believe that the cyber threat will equal or surpass the threat from counter terrorism in the foreseeable future. >> there's a strong likelihood that the next pearl harbor that we confront could very well be a cyber attack. >> we will suffer a catastrophic cyber attack. the c

minutes on cnbc. i'm bob simon. in this edition, we look at the life of tech titan steve jobs, the cofounder of apple, and we also examine the unexpected impact that one of his inventions, the ipad, is having on children and parents living with autism. in 2004, jobs asked walter isaacson, a former editor of time magazine, if he would write his biography. isaacson thought the request premature since jobs was still a young man. what he didn't know at the time, and only a few people did, was that jobs was about to undergo surgery for pancreatic cancer and was feeling his mortality. in 2009, with jobs already gravely ill, isaacson began the first of more than 40 interviews with him, the last being conducted a few weeks before his death. as steve kroft first reported in october 2011, the result was the best-selling book of the year. >> when walter isaacson first began working on the book-- which is published by simon & schuster, a division of cbs--steve jobs' wife, laurene powell, told him, "be honest with his failings as well as his strengths. there are parts of his life and his p
